I stayed at the inn this past weekend and I couldn't have been more pleased. Let me start off by saying I'm someone who loves quirky offbeat places. This is not a bougie sleek modern resort, so if that's your style, stay elsewhere. With that said, I freaking loved it here. It's an old Spanish style villa packed with unique... More

Villa Rosa Inn is an historic building. It is quaint, lovely and a perfect place to spend one or several nights. It is located one block from the beach and 1/4 mile from Sterns Wharf. Shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. The Inn is older and feels more like a residence than a hotel. It is clean and... More

We really enjoyed this hotel, it is very quaint and the staff are very friendly. Every evening at 5 PM there is a cheese and wine spread that is free for guests. We found this evening gathering of the guests made new friendships and for a very enjoyable stay. Our balcony was condemned, however we did not find this to... More

My husband & I stayed here touted as a B & B for one night on our way home from our son's wedding to have some couples time. The overall structure was nice; almost like a private mansion transformed into a small hotel however it was much more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast. The TV in our... More

Stayed for I night last week. The room was clean, the staff very nice and the cocktail hour and breakfast was great. I felt like I was in a villa in Italy. I would come back for sure. The location was terrific.

Cons: few parking spaces, dated decor, no A/C but no biggie bec at night it was breezy. I think this is a fair and honest review. I got it for $139 since its late Sunday night. Overall,... More

This is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed. Besides the filthy accommodations they rent some of the space to people with dogs who leave them In the rooms and let them bark all night long. Complaints to front desk were met with, 'we will fix it' and nothing was done. It is an awful place the city... More

We found this Villa Rosa Inn through hotels tonight app and paid £101 plus $10 on arrive. The hotel is very dated and our room smelt bad. The whole place needs updating and think it very expensive for what you get! The only plus point is that it's walking distance to the beach. That's why it gets one star! Do... More

My husband and I stayed at The Villa Rosa Inn in October 2015 and April 2016. Because we enjoyed it so much the first time, we decided to return. With only 18 rooms, the hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast inn. The service is excellent. The complimentary breakfast and late afternoon happy hour add a nice touch.... More

We happened upon this place, which was unassuming on the outside, but spacious, comfortable and authentic on the inside. Free wine and cheese in the afternoon, free continental breakfast in the morning. Pool, spa, close to the beach, the train station and to town. Just beautiful.
